Gibson posted this on Facebook today… I love the green burst, but I’m not sure about the mint-green binding. White or black would work for me. But green? Anyway, they’re calling it the “Green Widow.” With that binding, I’d call it the Lucky Leprechaun because it reminds me of Saint Paddy’s Day. Since it’s a Custom Shop model, I wonder if you could request ivory-colored binding or even black binding. Other than that, that green burst is totally different, and something I’d consider. But with that green binding, the jury’s out for me…
Dammit! The more I look at that guitar, the more it grows on me. Binding aside, this is the one of the coolest burst patterns I’ve seen in awhile. The Manhattan Blue was gorgeous to me, but this Green Widow looks a little sinister as well as being gorgeous. IF I got one of these, I’d probably call her Morgana or Maleficent, or after some beautiful woman that has a touch of darkness to her. Joan d’Arc would be a cool name as well.
In any case, I’ve been looking for details on hardware and such, and even the Gibson site doesn’t have information that I could find. I’m hoping this isn’t a one-off because this would be a great guitar to check out. That translucent green burst is sexy as hell!
